ToySky CSJ S162: Mavic Mini clone for less than $100

ToySky CSJ S162

From the first sight, it is obvious that the ToySky CSJ S162 wants to copy the Mavic Mini’s design in every detail. It features similar foldable arms, battery compartment, and landing gears. Furthermore, it claims to have also 249g just like the MINI.

Toy-Sky offers its CSJ S162 drone with two types of cameras. While 1080P version is advertised for $79.99, the 4K for 85.99. Both editions are available with 1, 2, or 3 flight batteries. According to the technical specs, the 7.4V/1200mAh LIPO pack allows up 18 minutes of flight time.

While with folded arms the aircraft measures 16 x 10 x 7.5cm, ready to fly has 37 x 33 x 7.5cm. During night flight you will be guided by 4 LED lights: two in front and two on the back (one under each rear motor).
